Nederlandse Reisopera

Die tote Stadt

In hands of director Jakob Peters-Messer, this impressive opera becomes a as passionate as surreal plea for mourning. "Who can't live with death, doesn't have a life."

Die tote Stadt is a psychologically layered and disconcerting love drama about Paul who, after the loss of his beloved Marie, slowly but surely gets entangled in a dream world of obsessions and delusions.

At the successful premiere of the opera in 1920, the music was described as alternating lyrical episodes and arias in a symphonic context. Director Jakob Peters Messer made Tristan und Isolde at the Reisopera, and last season the baroque opera Siroe, re di Persia.
